Quantum computing algorithms and peat extracts, a Chinese dictionary and skin stem cells, carbon nanowire switches and a catalogue of stars – the research results produced by the University of Latvia scientists are as varied as the directions of studies at the University of Latvia. Our goal is to provide science-based higher education in the key areas of consequence for Latvia’s people, economy, nature and public health, to make Latvia known in the world through our achievements in science and innovation. Over the past few years the research of the UL scientists has been extremely productive, largely due to the European Union funds to support graduate and doctoral students, new research groups, applied research and procurement of research equipment. The number of high-quality international publications and doctoral theses has grown, along with practical solutions offered to local manufacturers; also, support for new projects has been gained in prestigious international competitions. In this publication we would like to inform about some UL research findings, publications, and technological solutions. I hope that this will promote interest in cooperation and studies at the University of Latvia.
